Hi, just wondering what approach ex Blackboard users have taken when transitioning to Canvas?

  • The options for and implications of decommissioning Blackboard
  • Where the data should remain accessible for legislative reasons and for Teaching and Learning or related enquiry reasons
  • The level of granularity of data required to be retained for above purposes and how it should be accessed (Blackboard Application/report etc.)
  • The timing of this activity in relation to your Canvas deployment/migration
  • Licencing and support implications – are there any timing opportunities to minimise cost?
